edit: OOPs I can't change the title, but it should be: Sing: "Do you see that doggie, in the SHELTER?"


I just saw a documentary on HBO, Madonna of the Mills, about a woman who has saved 2000, or so, spent breeder dogs from her local area puppy mills (http://madonnaofthemills.com/puppy-mills/). It's great seeing Americans getting exposure to the horrors of the puppy mill industry, something that Rick Berman and the CCF is paid millions by the Pet Store coalition to keep us from seeing or thinking about.

Of course saving 2000 dogs from being shot with a gun, etc, is just a drop in the bucket, but it is still heartening to see her work and getting more national exposure.

One thing I found most interesting is that the woman, Patti Page, who sang the original "How Much is that Doggie in the Window" (http://video.humanesociety.org/video/629262638001/Channels/602026816001/Pets/774083836001/Doggie-in-the-Shelter/)1953 US pop hit, has re-recorded the song with the better push for shelter dog adopting instead. Bravo, Ms. Page !
